Let's get the bad news out of the way first. This Space Invaders-themed backpack only looks like a miniature replica of an arcade machine — it doesn't actually let you play the classic video game that has you fending off alien invaders. But we'll happily turn a blind eye to that oversight, because everything else about this pack is fantastic.

Sitting in the captain's chair on the bridge of the USS Enterprise must certainly give you a feeling of power and authority. But comfort? Captain Kirk's Starfleet throne never actually looked that comfortable, which is why we'd prefer boldly going where no one has gone before in this bean bag captain's chair instead.
A stellar view of the night sky, including all of our celestial neighbours, is dependent on countless factors like light pollution, the weather, and even the time of year. But you can guarantee that all of the planets in our solar system are visible when you go stargazing with this planetary string light set created by ThinkGeek.
ThinkGeek's timing could've been better with this 240-page notebook inspired by the NES console's boxy controllers. It would have been the perfect place to write down level codes, cheats or draw out maps to help you navigate Metroid's endless caves and caverns — when you were eight years old. But hey, it's never too late.
When you're storming into battle brandishing a Bat'leth, Daqtagh, Mek'leth and other traditional Klingon weapons, you're going to need an easy way to carry all those armaments — plus maybe a few snacks. This lovely messenger bag might not be part of the official Klingon uniform, but who says a warrior can't also be organised?
They're supposed to be an alternative to pumpkins and skeletons for decorating your home come Halloween, but these porch light covers, featuring Iron Man, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper masks, can just be left up all year round as a way to let the neighbourhood know your house is a safe place for nerdy types.
You'd have assumed that by the time the 24th century rolled around, Wi-Fi would be available across the galaxy. But Picard's Enterprise apparently still relied on isolinear chips — Star Trek's version of flash drives — to share data. ThinkGeek's version probably isn't quite as advanced, but you don't have to tell your imagination that.
When your work requires you to be in an office and interact with other people, you owe it to your co-workers to keep up your personal hygiene. That includes ensuring you keep the insides of your ears neat and tidy, unless you want your co-workers to do it for you using a tiny cotton bud crossbow. (You don't.)
It's considered to be one of the most perfectly designed video game levels of all time because it introduces players to new gameplay concepts without an instruction manual. And if you have fond memories of Super Mario Bros.' Level 1-1 (who doesn't?) you can now immortalise it on your wall.
